Liberty Harbor Protects the American Dream

 

US Flag

A beautiful flag

How do we rescue the American Dream?  What does it mean to be an American citizen?  It is much more than entitlements, amnesty, and political correctness.  It is also more than paying taxes and voting.  The American Dream is built on a foundation of virtue—actually several virtues, among them, integrity, honor, and self-discipline.  These are in short supply as we assess results of our public education in the last decades.

Today, there is a concerted effort to wipe out classical American virtues through a re-education of the American people.  As my students know, it does not take more than three generations to change a culture—and we are almost there.  Thomas Paine wrote that “virtue is not hereditary” it must be modeled and taught anew to each generation. As we become tone deaf to tradition we will no longer be able to hear the voices of the past, the present—or of the future.  We abandon the education of civic and moral virtues at great peril.  It is time to wake up and re-establish our cultural traditions.

Taking back our traditions means rejecting any attempt to undermine our national character, civic and moral virtues, and liberty for self-government.  It means emphasizing restraint, virtue, self-improvement, and a work ethic because a people who cannot support themselves are doomed to slavery.  It means rekindling Washington’s “sacred fire of liberty” to light the way to a renewal of the self-evident truths that we are all entitled to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”.

 

Declaration

The Declaration of Independence

On this our nation’s 237th birthday, Liberty Harbor promises to stand against the erosion of our culture.  We pledge, as did the signers of the Declaration of Independence, “our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor” to provide the education necessary to protect the American Dream.  Will you stand with us?

By re-educating, not only the present generation but the last as well, in the American virtues of self-reliance, self-discipline, and civility in the service of America, we will loose the shackles of indoctrination and march again with the torch of liberty held high.   Come with us!

Happy Birthday Liberty Harbor Academy!

Happy Birthday United States of America!
